What are analysts saying about Chevron stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chevron stock:

  • 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "The messages from Chevron's analyst meeting were in line with expectations: the cash cycle is improving; capex is being tightly controlled; production growth will accelerate; and Permian will be a key growth contributor, rising to 325-450 kbde by 2020." (3/8/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Chevron is one of the largest integrated energy firms in the world with an impressive business model. The company’s current oil and gas development project pipeline is among the best in the industry, boasting large, multi-year projects. Also, Chevron has been able to boost returns and remain competitive by embarking on aggressive cost reduction initiatives, exiting unprofitable markets and streamlining the organization. Owing to these positives, the company has been able to report better-than-expected earnings in the third quarter. However, due to commodity price rout, Chevron’s upstream division has been able to extract less value for their products. Worryingly, there are signs of weakness in the refining business, suggesting that the unit could now be a drag. Hence, while being incrementally positive on Chevron, we expect the shares to remain soft until commodity prices recover sufficiently." (11/9/2016)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We have focused on Chevron's 20+ upstream and new growth investments, including the Permian. These assets are forecast to deliver production, margin, and cash flow growth, while forecast capital investment is decreasing and becoming increasingly more flexible." (9/12/2016)
  • 4. Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "We hosted an investor lunch with CEO and Chairman John Watson." (6/8/2016)
